Winter Wonders

Winter has finally set in!!!!

Snow covers the grounds, while you fall in.

Next day, ice sets in!

It crunches under your heals, as you’re thrown in

The icy weather that blankets the ground to win.

The icy wonderland whites and crystals reign

As we tobogan, having fun, again.

And as always, on your way home, you watch the plane

Flying passengers to the warmth of the sun.

My heart says: ‘Never again!’

‘Shall I pass this road without the wonder

Of flight and drizzle following my thunder.

I reach for its boisterous boom, all aflutter,

Hoping that with each step I learn about myself and the other.

The best knowledge to impart is to always be kinder.

Kind towards others,

Loving to family,

Respectful to colleagues and strangers,

Honest with yourself, fully

Understanding yourself and the need for your piety.

Always Been!!

Change, chaos, challenge, charm, chimp!

As I have always needed stability and certitude,

Life has thrown me many curve balls, making me limp

With the heavy burdens of life’s fortitude.

As I have always been a shy introvert, Life’s changes required me to get out of my comfort

Zone. I became a teacher, when that demanded

Being an extrovert, connecting wholly with my student.

As I have always been dirrect and honest,

It has given me trouble at home as well as at work.

I stood by my values, added some valuable insight

For my entourage and myself.

Learing from others

Is a necessity if you want to avoid falling into trouble.

It’s not demeaning to know you can grow and change,

Even if that means relying on others for help.

Being an introvert means, for me, that being among people

Is difficult, and commands all of my intellect

To be able to follow all the required social cues

And demands for certain behavior, responses,

Even patterns of speech. Implying great concentration

That taxes me emotionally as well as intellectually.

At times i feel like a chimp that is a horrendously

Mischievous creature that becomes nasty when

Imposed upon to be social while needing solitude..
